Generalkopho Leadership Program (GLP)
GLP is a community organizing platform that EMPOWERS and CONNECTS budding leaders from across Nigeria so as to change the status quo in their various communities. We are focused on promoting the sustainable development goals with a keen interest in SDGs 1-7, 11 and 13 through our community projects/campaigns.
Through our fellowship, online community, master classes, and community leadership centers, we want to have a POSITIVE IMPACT on at least 100 million people– mostly women, children and the extremely poor– over the next 10 years.
We select, train and connect committed young leaders from across Nigeria with mentors in the United States, Zambia, Nigeria, Uganda, United Kingdom, Kenya, Canada, Bahrain, Egypt, Ghana, Germany, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and DR Congo through our yearly fellowship.
Our ultimate goal is to mentor at least 1000 young Nigerians into transformational leaders in government, business, civic and corporate sectors by August 17, 2027. Their influence over the years will challenge the status quo, transform their communities, and change the course of history. Come with us!
At GLP, we don’t just TRAIN leaders, we also SUPPORT and Connect them to transform their communities.

GLP program was like redemption. It came at the period when I got tired of looking for networking opportunities. I love meeting people, GLP provided a platform for me to network with like-minded individuals & also learn from them. It opened my eyes to see that the world is full of unlimited opportunities. Also, the importance of mentorship & volunteerism. Of course, without GLP, I wouldn’t have come across great minds like General Kopho, Gbemiga, Grace, Osagie & my fellow GLP participants. Thank you, for believing in me even when I give up on myself.

Personally, I have benefited a lot from this program I think this was specifically meant for me. This program has helped me develop myself in ways I never expected. I have built self confidence and also the urge to delve into aspects of life I never thought I will be able to.
It is no longer news that I am now a Global Peace Ambassador. If not for this program, I wouldn’t have had the nerve to apply for that position.
Also, I have engaged in several other humanitarian services in order to contribute my quota to nation building and I’m glad I did.
On a whole, I would recommend GLP to anyone who wants to become a better person tomorrow.
GLP is a life transforming platform that made me realise my true purpose; so many things changed for me positively after the program, I mean in every aspect of my life and personal development.
For budding entrepreneurs and those aspiring to become an exemplary leader, GLP is one to be a part of.
